since i've lived in the boston area i've rarely taken advantage of what the city has to offer at christmas time. how foolish! so a few days ago we headed down for dinner, an ice skating show on the frog pond, and the tree lighting on the common. we ended up heading out before the tree lighting (it was cooooold), but it was a fun, spontaneous trip anyway. and dinner at the paramount is never a bad idea (i'm getting too predictable at this point. all my boston meals are taken at the paramount. bridge! what about the variety!).
ps. i'm sure a lot of you noticed that my post from friday was taken down. there was no drama behind my doing so (though, i'm sure some of you are side-eyeing that and thinking: but! there must have been!). there wasn't, truly. but, as the day went on, i just couldn't be absolutely certain that my good intentions and love would be heard loudest. it's a shame... cause man! i loved that post. and, it's possible that pieces of it will be posted again since, after all, it remains in my drafts folder where it began. but i thank you so much for your comments and emails. i said it on twitter but it's worth repeating: i have the best readers. and while i started this blog with none, i sure am glad you guys are out there now. so thank you! even for the comments that questioned it being posted in the first place (since... ultimately, i ended up agreeing with you!).
and that's it! hope you're having a great saturday!
